The future for Narberth pool is looking brighter.
Discussions have started between Pembrokeshire County Council and the Friends of Narberth Pool on the potential to transfer operations to a Community Enterprise.
It follows a meeting which took place this/on Monday morning between representatives of the county council and the Friends.
The authority's cabinet will now be asked to defer the planned closure of the pool on April 1 for three months to enable a detailed business plan to be completed.
A working party will look at issues such as staffing, funding and legal matters.
A public meeting will also take place at 6.30pm next Monday (February 3)at Narberth CP School.
The future of Narberth swimming pool has been highlighted in recent months following a proposal that consultation take place on the option of closing the pool from April 1 this year with a saving of £126,000 a year.
The proposal followed a recent review of all the county’s leisure facilities as part of the council’s search for efficiency savings.
The 20-metre pool was built in 1973 and is the only stand-alone pool in the county.
